Track Name: Finding Our Way
Finding Our Way



Woke up with my heart in backwards
Through broken blinds the
sky was trying to light
Shouldn’t have said what I
said to you,
even if the words I felt
came out right
We’re just finding our way
We’re just finding our way
Her blonde hair still cupped
in her shoulder
Eyes wet where the tears
still had to fade
Counting the sighs between
the sunrise
She turned to me and asked
me if we’re gonna be ok
We’re just finding our way
We’re just finding our way

Simple Things


I don’t know what you said to me,
it was so late last night
I just remember your kiss to me,
before you turned out the light
It’s the simple things we’ve
come to know
That keep us going when this
world grows cold
Your love alone doesn’t carry me
We’ll be best friends
throughout this life
It’s times like these
it’s hard to believe
you are my partner and my wife
It’s the simple things that
touch our souls
and keep our hearts warm
as we grow old
Our love made this beautiful boy
A little person with your blonde hair
Now we have this family
A simple love for us to share
It’s the simple things in life
Through my darkness I
see your light

Track Name: Smallest Point of View
Smallest Point of View


Your sweetest smile, I'm embracing
Amazed with all the things you do
An innocence that could
lift the saddest heart,
can also tear your heart in two
Reminding us, of those
things forgotten
From the smallest point of view
I grow with you
In this world, love is fading
It's on our faces every day
But with one word, you can calm
my raging heart
and bring some peace into my day
Reminding us, of those
things forgotten
From the smallest point of view
I grow with you
I grow with you

Track Name: In a Song
In A Song


All alone
It's just me trying to breathe
within a song
Finding the words to say it all
Describing us, always takes me
to a place where I belong
Where love is strong
In a song
If I dream,
will it take the place of all that I see
I stumble to find a better way
The strength I get,
brings me to a place where I
can carry on
Where hope lives on
In a song
Holding time for us to stay,
innocent for just a day,
a window into who we are
With a love that still feels new,
I write of my life here with you,
where memories can still live on
In a song
